We stopped here for a pint and spot of lunch, the service was quick, both food and drink were top notch especially the twice baked red lion chips. They accommodate dogs in the tap room and will bring a bowl of water for your dog if needed inside or out. Will pop in again on my next visit to bakewell

Such a friendly atmosphere. A brilliant place to eat. The food was quick and superb. There was a good range to choose from with plenty of veggie options. It was family friendly with babies and children made welcome. I will definitely visit again, and can thoroughly recommend it.

Popped in on a whim as it looked pretty decent and was quite full giving an indication that the food was good. My wife ordered the chicken while i ordered the meat ploughmans. I was disappointed as the chips were overcooked, the coleslaw was tasteless and the pork pie was quite disgusting even though it was supposed to be award...
